Heavy duty lathe - A special type of lathe

A lathe is a stationary machine that is used to manufacture workpieces that are symmetric about an axis of rotation. Heavy duty lathes are a special type of lathe. Contrary to small and medium sized lathes, heavy duty lathes can process workpieces weighing up to several tonnes. Heavy duty lathes can produce products such as shanks, camshafts and cranks for ship diesel engines, spools for mills, or hydraulic shanks for powerful linear motors.

The structure of a typical heavy duty lathe

A heavy duty lathe is in general not so different from a table lathe. A workpiece is fixed in between the spindle and the tailstock and then using an electric motor, it is brought to a constant rotational speed and processed. These work stages are not done manually, but are run by a predetermined programme. The dimensions of a heavy duty lathe can be customised: depending on the size, shape and type of the workpiece, supportive bearings can be installed to prevent the workpiece from bending or hanging. The chippings created by heavy duty lathes are generally bigger, hotter and faster than those from small, hand-operated machines. Therefore, heavy duty lathes need to be effectively encased. Those that are not enclosed should only be used for soft materials or with a slow rotation speed.

This means that they require more comprehensive maintenance and cleaning. Heavy duty lathes are tools that should not be used by unskilled workers. Participation in a course about lathes would be enough to operate a table lathe and achieve good results. A heavy duty lathe, its tools and the workpieces are more expensive because they can only be operated by highly experienced and specially trained workers.

Necessities of a heavy duty lathe

Heavy duty lathes are not stand alone machines. They must be added to an already existing assembly of tools. For the operation of a heavy duty lathe it is necessary that there is a properly fitted overhead crane available. Alternatively, or additionally, a heavy-duty forklift can also be used. In this case, before the installation of a heavy duty lathe, it is important to make sure that there is space for the industrial trucks to move. Another important factor is to ensure that the workpieces are safely and accurately mounted and removed from the machine. There needs to be a sufficient supply of electricity and large enough tanks for cooling lubricant.
